Heat 8: 1000m | FP: 4th (of 5) | Jockey: Lucas Camilleri
Well away from b2 and held a forward position before settling 2nd (rail) behind the tearaway leader. Under pressure to hold her position on the turn and was being worked on when 3rd (rail) swinging for home. Tested with the whip at the top of the straight and failed to respond, fading out of contention to finish 4th beaten 21-1/2 lengths.
Metro Mischief didn’t measure up to expectations at yesterday’s trials and she needs to improve significantly to earn herself a race start. We will give her another trial at Belmont on Monday June 22 and assess her racing future from there.
